Noted and passed - July 8, 2013

• The automobile business in the United States has had its ups and downs over the past few decades, suffering through recessions and profiting mightily during good times. But over the last 60 years, one thing's been constant: the allure of the Corvette, which began in a humdrum fashion but became a "hot" car when it was redesigned into the Stingray in the 1960s. The Corvette, recast for 2014, is still a head-turner.

Brothers

A girl who does not have a brother never receives a thorough education. For example, when I saw that my brother never had to do odious chores such as cooking, washing dishes, ironing or whatever, I determined to do all I could to become a boy. My brother cooperated in many ways; for one, he said if I kissed my elbow, I would magically become male, this chore keeping me from following him around since he was my god.

CMA verdict

A civil jury didn't take long this week to find in favor of Camden Military Academy officials who had been sued for allegedly fostering an atmosphere of bullying which the plaintiff claimed led to a sexual assault in 2008. Given the extended nature of the trial and the serious accusations, the quick verdict obviously proved that jurors gave little credence to the claims. The testimony was at times sordid and no doubt painful for the three CMA officials who had been named -- Col. Eric Boland, headmaster; Lt. Col. Pat Armstrong, commandant of cadets; and Command Sgt. Major Vertis Wilder.
